status

 

Cotula prostrata (Linnaeus) Linnaeus  , Systema Naturae, ed. 12, 2: 564. 1767.

["Habitat in India."] Sp. Pl. 2: 902 (1753). RCN: 6514.

Basionym: Verbesina prostrata L. (1753)  .

Lectotype (Wijnands, Bot. Commelins: 74. 1983): [icon] " Chrysanthemum Maderaspatanum, Menthae  arvensis folio & facie, floribus bigemellis, ad foliorum alas, pediculis curtis " in Plukenet, Phytographia: t. 118, f. 5. 1691; Almag. Bot.: 100. 1696. - Typotype: Herb. Sloane 94: 175 ( BM-SL)  .

Current name: Eclipta prostrata (L.) L.  ( Asteraceae  ).

Note: D’Arcy (in Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 62: 1102. 1975) indicated 1020.4 or 1020.5 (LINN) as the type of the basionym, presumably in error as both are associated with the name " Eclipta latifolia  " rather than V. prostrata  . Neither they, nor 1020.7 (LINN), the post-1753 Patrick Browne collection treated as the lectotype by Kupicha (in Davis, Fl. Turkey 5: 46. 1975), are original material for the name. Grierson (in Dassanayake & Fosberg, Revised Handb. Fl. Ceylon 1: 212. 1980) treated material in Herb. Plukenet ( BM-SL) as “type”, but this would not have been seen by Linnaeus and is not original material either. Wijnands’ 1983 choice of the Plukenet illustration as lectotype is therefore accepted here.
